Attached is a copy of SMI Frequently Asked Questions for you to distribute to your school food authorities. This document is additional SMI guidance for state agencies and SFAs to use in implementing SMI requirements.

We developed this resource by compiling participants’ questions from our national SMI training in 2004 and our responses to these questions. The questions represent common areas of SMI in which participants wanted additional clarification.

Print-copies will also be distributed to state agencies and school food authorities, along with the Road to SMI Success — A Guide for School Foodservice Directors and Nutrient Analysis Protocols — How to Analyze Menus for USDA’s School Meals Programs when they become available.

Director
Child Nutrition Division
